Truck drivers to stay awake with wearables

highway-1277246_1280

SmartCap Technologies, based in Brisbane, Australia, makes a trucker’s cap that can detect when the wearer is getting drowsy. It triggers a smartphone alarm or, if the danger of falling asleep is extreme, alerts a supervisor or dispatcher. The smart cap works by tracking brain waves using sensors that, like an EEG, measure microvolts of electricity on the wearer’s forehead. They also produce safety helmets. www.smartcaptech.com
